Friendship isn’t always easily described. The Eskimos, they say, have a hundred different words for snow. Unfortunately, the English language isn’t quite as innovative, so friendship remains more as a cherished feeling among all of us. In cartoons we see friendships which the characters share with true human feelings.
Legendary friendships among cartoon characters include:
5. Flintstones and Rubbles
The friendly neighbors- Fred and Wilma Flintstone and Barmey and Betty Rubble are comical instances of people abiding the “love thy neighbor” theory. The quartet hold each others hand in their highs and lows,while the husbands are the best of friends . Fred,the henpecked one is stupid and most of the times ends up in trouble and Barney ,the smarter one rescues his best friend in each occasion.
4. Mowgli and Bagheera
Mowgli, the child from Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book was unknown to the laws of the jungle. He befriends Bagheera who educates and trains him to survive in the jungle.
